I had a corner of my garage with my odd and ends of scrap metal. My wife pointed out that it took up a lot of room and would look cleaner if it was out side down by the other shed. I didn't want it outside. But, had a parts washer I kind of wanted in that same corner. (notice I didn't say she was right) I don't like looking for metal in the dark thats snow covered, in sub 0 temps. (Tonight its -31 C)
My solution was to build a portable storage rack. I had bought a little 2 wheel trailer at auction paid a whooping $7.50. (think it was a snowmobile trailer from the late 60's). Put some storage racks on it. TaDa I store it in my cold storage shed out of the snow etc. When I doing some metal welding I bring the storage rack ion the garage, Metal is warm and dry when I need it. In the summer I can bring it to the garage door . When I'm done I can take it back down to the shed. Out of sight out of mind.
Garage is neater and my parts washer is in the corner were I wanted.
